Designing an integrated charging network to support alternative means of transport is an intrinsic matter; it contributes to users' satisfaction and market penetration. It has given attention over the last three years; a few studies were undertaken addressing the location of the charging station problem. On the other hand, automotive manufacturers are working on extending the range to 250 miles or more in the Electric Vehicle (EV) hence reduce the urgent need of public recharging facilities. Another initiative is taken by the UK government to fund domestic charger installation to promote the market [1]. Planners and policy makers have to economically design integrated RFs that can support the demand and secure the way for potential users to join the market. Analysing the behavioural element and the business aspect of the current EV system, will assist in designing future EV users. This article examines and evaluates Newcastle Upon Tyne EV system among three years of operation. The comparison portrays the change and the evolving use of the system by inhabitants and visitors driving EVs. Time series model is developed to map the three years of operation. Forecast model is designed to predict the charging patterns of the real users in the capital of the North East of England, Newcastle. The outcome of this study should assist planning authorities and policy makers in assessing current EV systems and provide design guidelines for future planning.
